Q:

Why should we homeschool?

A:

Below are just a few benefits from homeschooling:

  • Spend more time with your children.
  • Spend more time with your children when they are rested and fresh rather than tired and cranky after school.
  • Children can learn subjects not usually taught in their school.
  • Allow your children to learn at their own pace.
  • Allow children to work at a level that is appropriate to their own developmental stage.  
  • Provide long, uninterrupted blocks of time for writing, reading, playing, thinking, or working so that the child is able to engage in sophisticated, complex activities and thought processes.
  • Encourage concentration and focus - which are discouraged in crowded classrooms with too many distractions.
  • Watch your child develop the ability to pace her/himself.
  • Teach your children to help more with household chores and personal responsibility.
  • Enjoy more field trips by spending time outdoors, at museums, parks, historical sites.
